Creating memories using maps
I read a Momania article from last year called “Google mapping the ones you love” which explains how their family uses Google maps and other technology to help their “kids feel connected to their father when he travels for business”. So I went looking for other ways you can show someone they are very spatial ; Last February Google Maps API showed readers how to write Valentine’s Day messages on Google Maps. Geogreeting made me smile because it spells out Hello World! or any other message in buildings. The UK’s Ordnance Survey provides a quick way to find romantic locations such as Cupidâ€™s Hill in Monmouthshire or Valentines Park in London. USGS has worksheet explaining how to use maps in creating your family history. Family oral history explains how maps can be used not just to document your family history but start conversations.
